British Airways and Swiss operate flights to Geneva Airport – sometimes called Cointrin Airport, its former name – from London’s airports.
Monarch can sometimes offer the cheapest flights to Geneva from London Gatwick (LGW) during the ski season, with departures twice a week.
Thomson Airways also operates on the same route, with a weekly departure on Saturdays between December and April. For 2017, Thomson has introduced a new service from Stansted (STN) that also operates on Saturdays.
Having made the Swiss city one of its hubs, easyJet is the best bet for regional flights to Geneva. The low-cost carrier operates flights from no fewer than 16 UK airports, from Inverness (INV) and Belfast (BFS) to Bournemouth (BOH) and London Southend (SEN). Around half are seasonal, with the others flying all year.
Flybe and Jet2.com each have several winter-only departures to Geneva from various runways around the UK. Departure points for Flybe include the Isle of Man (IOM), Cardiff (CWL) and its main hub of Exeter (EXT), while Jet2.com’s most frequent services leave Edinburgh (EDI) and Manchester (MAN). New routes from London Stansted and Birmingham (BHX) are being introduced for the 2017 ski season, but the Glasgow (GLA) route will cease after April 2017.
Thomas Cook Airlines offers a weekly service to Geneva from Bristol (BRS) between December and April, departing on Saturdays.
With such strong competition on services from the UK and so many low-cost carriers involved, cheap Geneva flights are easy to find and offer extraordinarily low prices, regularly dipping below the £50 mark.

It’s also possible to reach Geneva aboard ‘ski trains’ in the space of one day. Ride the Eurostar from London St Pancras to Paris Gare du Nord, then transfer to Gare de Lyon for a high-speed TGV connection to Gare de Genève Cornavin (simply Gare Cornavin to most). The latter takes a shade over three hours.
Alternatively, you could drive through France, enjoying farmlands and fabulous alpine scenery. Expect the journey to take around ten hours plus refreshment stops.
